I am 22 years of age, almost 23 and plan on getting married next year. We are hopeful to try for a baby after the wedding. My story started last October when I was on the pill but noticed significant changes in my periods. My GP brushed this off several times so I took i took myself off the pill at the end of the year incase something was wrong.I have been on it since I was 16/17. Since then I have had problems with periods and pains. Over the last month or so I took it upon myself to see a private gynaecologist in Scotland due to my following symptoms.
1.Severe period cramps
2.Severe cramping round about ovulation time
3.Black blood at start of periods
4. periods lasting approx 8 days
5. discomfort during sex
5. I also have twinges in my cervix area almost everyday
The consultant told me within 5 minutes of sitting down it was very likely that it was endo and I had to go for an internal scan to check for cyst. This was clear. I have now been referred by my NHS GP to start the process again so I can have a lap on the NHS. This is the first time I have had to give in and call in sick from my work because of the pain. I had to take a bath during the night and wear heat pads front and back. Nothing helps!
Anyone know how long I might need to wait? And does anyone else have the same symptoms as me? Im concerned I go for the procedure and they don't find anything. Im scared I'm wasting peoples time but the pain is unreal. I dread every month.
